BNSF's New Image is slowly but surely being applied to more and more existing units (in addition to new units). Noted this GP38-2 working on the "Salt Mine" switch job at BNSF's 31st Street Yard.

Yes, those are two little Carrier A/C units. The reason? Because it gets hot in that cab, and man do those little suckers cool it off nicely in there. There's a popular myth among railroaders and railfans alike that the only reason railroads installed A/C in their locomotives was to protect the computer equipment. Clearly this picture lays that story to rest, as the 2017 and those like her are as conventional as can be. The A/C is all about comfort, and it sure is nice on a blistering Colorado afternoon.

Is that 2 A/C units on the roof? If so, I wonder why?
